How Did We Do With Our UFC Fight Night Predictions?
In a word, actually two words, not well. It should come as no surprise that Ryan and I did a crappy job picking winners for the UFC Fight Night event over the weekend.
We tried a new method for our picks this time around. Instead of actually trying to come up with an educated decision based on records, past fights, styles, age, etc - we just said the first thing that came to our mind. No preparation, no nothing...just who we thought would win and how. The way we saw it was that we couldn't do any worse than our previous picks. We were wrong though. I think we did, in fact, do worse than before.
Remember, we have a chance to score 2 points per fight - one point for the correct winner and one point for the correct method.
Check out the results below.
